About Everest Link

Everest Link is a fixed-wireless Internet access provider that maintains its own wireless network. The company established in late 2014, is the result of efforts made by Mr. Tsering Gyaltsen Sherpa to give connectivity to the valley where he grew up. The company has established many towers at high places along the Khumbu Valley to give fixed-wireless connectivity, allowing for line-of-sight wireless broadcasts to base camp. At the foot of the world’s highest peak, a Nepali entrepreneur holds a monopoly on internet connectivity. Everest Link collaborates with local foundations and the Department of National Park to deliver high-quality information and communication services to locals, government offices, schools, tourists and hospitals throughout the Himalayan area.

The efforts made by Everest link has brought revolution in the status of internet in the Everest region. Everest Link has also developed a service called “Hello, Doctor,” which offers free medical consultations to anybody in Khumbu.
